I have for sale a GOOD CONDITION softbound textbook of 600 pages titled "CORRECTIONS: AN INTRODUCTION" Third Edition, written by Richard P Seiter with a copyright year of 2011 by Pearson Education ( ISBN 0-13-506082-6 ) (28944) This textbook has moderate cover, corner and edge wear. One of the front cover corners is creased and split, resulting in moderate turning and/or wear to some of the initial page corners.
